Today is the first day of the "Paleo Challenge." Thats 6 weeks of strict Paleo for hubs and I. No, I am not pregnant (even though you wont see me drink for the next 6 weeks). No, this is not something we "have" to do... this is something we are choosing to do.
The rules have been set by CrossFit Wachusett. There is a prize, but honestly, its not the prize that is my motivation for this one. Its a personal challenge, its a mental challenge and the satisfaction and results that will come from it are more than any physical prize I can be given.
Whats the change? Hubs and I already pretty much eat Paleo already... Why change things up? Well because there is always room for improvement and currently we allow ourselves at least one "not so paleo" meal a week and occasionally we "stretch" the rules. We allow ourselves some sugars, protein powder outside of a 1/2 an hour of our workout and of course, there is the alcohol. We have significantly cut down on our drinking, this will eliminate it for 6 weeks. I am really looking forward to the results!
Its going to be fun!! I am going to keep track of my meals and beverages here... I did take pictures, weigh myself and measure myself yesterday so lets let the Paleo Challenge speak for itself eh?
